Publisher's Summary

The inspirational wisdom of Oprah Winfrey, collected for the first time in a beautiful book. After film critic Gene Siskel asked her, 'What do you know for sure?' Oprah Winfrey began writing the 'What I Know For Sure' column in O, The Oprah Magazine. Saying that the question offered her a way to take 'stock of her life', Oprah has penned one column a month over the last 14 years, years in which she retired The Oprah Winfrey Show (the highest-rated program of its kind in history), launched her own television network, became America's only black billionaire, was awarded an honorary degree from Harvard University and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, watched friends and colleagues come and go, lost beloved pets and adopted new ones, and celebrated milestone birthdays. Throughout it all, she's continued to offer her profound and inspiring words of wisdom in her 'What I Know For Sure' column in O, The Oprah Magazine. Now, for the first time, these thoughtful gems have been revised, updated, and collected in What I Know For Sure, a beautiful book packed with insight and revelation from Oprah Winfrey. Organized by theme - joy, resilience, connection, gratitude, possibility, awe, clarity, and power - these essays offer a rare and powerful glimpse into the mind of one of the world's most extraordinary women. Candid, moving, exhilarating, uplifting, and dynamic, the words Oprah shares in What I Know For Sure shimmer with the sort of wisdom and truth that listeners will turn to again and again.

Beautifully written

A wonderful book based on Oprah's experience narrated in her wonderfully hypnotic, relaxing and familiar voice. She shares her lessons learned in life and business that you can take and impart in your life. Very easy to listen to with wonderful messages that resonate. I will be listening again and again.

what I know for sure

Well I know for sure that Oprah sure knows a thing or two about being true to who you are and walking in your complete self. Worth a read and a good standby in your book collection. Listen on audio, even better.

Gave me chills...

If you love Oprah, and the kinda content she divulges into... this is for you. An extension of her Super Soul Sunday classes. I really liked it. Excellent easy listen tSundau Sund relaxing afternoon.

Life Changing and Life Affirming

Any additional comments?

This book is nothing short of brilliant. I have never really followed Oprah nor read her magazine "O" - but this book, made up of 14 years worth of her column from her magazine has opened my mind to looking more into what Oprah has to offer. I will listen to this book over and over again. It is excellently narrated by Oprah herself. I have also ordered the book in hard copy for five of my friends. Highly recommended.
